Upcycle Old Shirts Into T-shirt Yarn Baskets

Old T-shirts aren't only good as garage rags, you know. Turn them into continuous pieces of yarn that you can then crochet into T-shirt Yarn Baskets! These little baskets and containers are made using T-shirt yarn. The yarn is sturdy and soft. I have been using these for my house, too. These little creations are great for bathroom storage, desk organization,  and nursery room organization.

Garage rags are handy, but T-Shirt Yarn Baskets are functional and adorable!

Editor's note: We are not responsible for any "favorite" old shirts cut up for this excellent idea!

I did this with my fathers old ratty t-shirts after he passed away. Gave it to my sister who uses it as a beach bag.
